Good things take time.

In 2008 I joined a Block Round Robin run by I think Lynda Renny of Kiwiquilters Online. We all sent off a block pattern and a colour scheme. If you pop over to Amy’s blog Seven Stitches you can see some of the other blocks we made.While I have been waiting for my new machine to arrive I have been completing some UFOs.My Linda’s Stars blocks came to the top of the pile, this is how I put them together:
Linda's Star Quilt
I love the block, if you would like to make some you can find the pattern at The Quilter’sCache. It is a tad tricky to piece – but worth the effort. The setting was designed by Fiona Hussey of Taupo Quiltmakers.Thanks for sharing with me Fiona.

I love this quilt top.
Yep it’s right what they say on the Mainland, good things take time.

It wouldn’t do to rush.
Thanks for popping by.

  1. Like the ad( I always liked it so much), very good things take a little more time, and your quilt proves this in millions!! Super blocks, yes, a bit/ a lot/ huge amount of time and stitching, to get those perfect matching seams. Lovely colours that go so well together. Greetings to all, Jean.

  2. Lovely top. I can't wait to see what magic you perform on it when you get your new machine. I hope it arrives soon. Did you manage to sell your old one?

  5. I have never seen that star block before, and I LOVE it! Thanks for the link.

    This is a stunning quilt: the blue with splashes of color are perfect. An excellent finish, Linda!

  6. I really like the colours in that quilt...very nice!

    How are you coping without a quilting machine...I'd be going slowly nuts! At least you can still piece and sew I guess .

    1. Hi Shay

      Thank you. I'm loving this quilt, but it's going to have to go at the back of the queue for quilting. My new machine may be just one sleep away. i'm so looking forward to quilting again.

  7. Really like these star blocks, beautiful. Looking forward to see it quilted.
